    Hi all, I am currently in Goa but on my return 24th March I will have a word with my local friendly Landlords who have large car parks and I'm sure would be more than happy to have us like minded funsters. I will update you all. It would be just outside Penryn.

    I'm a sucker for Cornwall, fell in love with it at 17 having ridden a scooter there over 300 miles. Been just about every year at least once since.
    Lamb, mint and pea pasty from Penganna bakery in St Ives is worth the journey alone.

    We could meet up and plot revenge against Dawn B:Rofl1:

    Come on then, I'm waiting....................

    who wrote to you about pub names (BT, August 15), might be interested to know that there is also a pub called the Bucket of Blood in Hayle in Cornwall.

    One morning, so the story goes, a bucket was put down the well to collect water and up came a bucket of blood complete with a severed head.

    We'd definitely be interested, providing there's no clash with other meets.
    Thanks:thumb::thumb:

    Legend says the Bucket of Blood got its name many years ago when the landlord went to the on-site well to get a bucket of water but found there to be just blood. Further investigation found there was a badly mutilated body at the bottom of the well.
